our nursery is finished! (xp, pic heavy!)

...well, pretty much! I'd like to get some blinds yet, and a crib skirt.

I'm super proud of myself, because this was very inexpensive to decorate!

Standing in the doorway...

The curtains hung in my room when I was younger (again, want to get some blinds so it's darker for naptimes!)

I spray-painted this branch and cut out the butterflies using my Cricut. I found the branch idea here: http://dearlillieblog.blogspot.com/search/label/nursery It's all hung by clear wire. I have a few more butterflies left to hang, but you get the idea...

Her headband collection ( :help: ). Her hats are in the birdcage. I'm a knitter, and am obsessed with cute hats! We used the birdcage at our wedding for cards. I love that it's being used and not sitting in storage! I'm working on more hairbows for her collection. I bought a plain white frame, put a piece of coordinating patterned paper in it, and glued the ribbon in the back to hang her bows on. I made the fabric bunting w/leftover fabric from those circular things you see above the changing table (don't look at imperfections...it was my first time making a fabric banner!).

I know! I can't either! ROFL There are 10 in there, all different sizes. I also need to go through Miles' old hats because I know there's some that she'll be able to wear (2 Christmas ones, a Valentine one, a pumpkin one!). It's addicting...I tell ya! I actually didn't make any of those headbands! I found a hairbow supply website and ordered one in every color in 2 different styles. LOL They were like .69 each or something crazy cheap! I figure then I can just interchange the bows as needed! ( http://www.hairbowcenter.com/ There are lots more sites if you Google it, but that's the one I ordered from Biggrin )

Okay, I'm dying to comment on this, but I can't see the pics. And with the move, I just haven't had a chance to look at home yet. Please don't think I'm ignoring you, I'm dying to see it! I might get some ideas for Layla's room...I LOVE paper lanterns, so I'm already intrigued, just by reading people's comments. LOL
